Have you ever noticed advertisements which say “Learn a foreign language in 6 weeks, or your money back! From the first day your pronunciation will be excellent. Just send…” and so on? Of course, it never happens quite like that. The only language that is easy to learn is one’s mother tongue. And think how much practice that gets! Before the Second World War people usually learnt a foreign language in order to read the literature of the country.
Now speaking a foreign language is what most people want. Every year millions of people start learning one. How do they do it? Some people try at home, with books and records of tapes; some use radio or television programmes; some use computers and network; others go to evening classes. If they use the language only 2 or 3 times a week, learning it will take a long time, like learning a foreign language at school. A few people try to learn a language fast by studying for 6 or more hours a day. It is clearly easier to learn the language in the country where it is spoken.
However, most people cannot afford this, and for many it is not necessary. They need the language in order to do their work better. For example, scientists and doctors chiefly need to be able to read books and reports in the foreign language. Whether the language is learnt quickly or slowly, it is hard work. Machines and good books will help, but they cannot do the student’s work for him.
31. According to some advertisements, you ______.
A. have to pay your money if you cannot master a foreign language in 6 weeks
B. needn’t pay you money if you cannot learn a foreign language in 6 weeks
C. must pay your money if you cannot master a foreign language in 6 weeks
D. will be paid much money if you cannot learn a foreign language in 6 weeks
32. Now most people try to learn a foreign language in order to ______.
A. read the literature of the country B. read books and reports
C. do their work better D. go to foreign countries
33. Learning a foreign language is a hard job ______.
A. only for scientists and doctors B. only for the students at school
C. for those people at home D. for most people
If you go into the woods with your friends, stay with them. If you don’t, you may get lost. If you do get lost, this is what you should do.
Sit down and stay where you are. Don’t try to find your friends — let them find you. You can help them to find you by staying in one place.
There is another way to help your friends or other people nearby to find you. Give them a signal by shouting or whistling three times. Stop. Then shout or whistle three times again. Any signal given three times is a call for help. You will be helped by others.
Keep up the shouting or whistling, always three times together. When people hear you, they will know that you are not just making noise for fun. They will let you know they have heard your signal. They will give two shouts, two whistles or two gunshots. When a signal is given twice, it is an answer to a call for help.
If you don’t think that you will get help before night comes, try to make a little house and cover up the holes with branches with lots of leaves and grass. What should you do if you get hungry or need to drink some water? You should have to leave your little branch house to look for a brook. Don’t just walk away. Pick off small branches and drop them as you walk so that you can find your way back.
The most important thing to do when you are lost is — stay in one place.
34. How do you let people believe that you are not just making noise for fun?
A. Stop now and then. B. Go on shouting or whistling.
C. Shout over and over at the top of voice. D. Shout or whistle three times once a while.
35. If nobody answers you after your signal, what should you do then?
A. Give two gunshots. B. Shout louder.
C. Stop shouting. D. Make a house.
36. If you feel thirsty when you are lost in the forest, what should you do?
A. Go and find a brook.
B. Light a fire and make yourself some tea.
C. Go to find a brook and leave marks behind you.
D. Find something to hold the water.
37. What’s the best title for the passage?
A. What Do Three Shots And Two Shots Mean In A Forest
B. How To Find Your Friends When You Are Lost In The Woods
C. What To Do If You Get Lost In A Forest
D. The Most Important Thing To Do Is To Stay In One Place
People seem to have a natural need for friends and with good reason. Friends increase your enjoyment of life and relieve feelings of loneliness. They even can help reduce stress and improve your health. Having good friends is especially helpful when you are going through any kind of hard time such as when you are experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, or depression.
When you are with good friends you feel good about yourself, and you are glad to be with them. A friend is someone who —
●you like, respect, and trust, and who likes, respects and trusts you
●doesn’t always understand you, but accepts and likes you as you are, even as you grow and change
●allows you the space to change, grow, make decisions, and even make mistakes
●listens to you and shares with you both the good times and the bad times
●respects your need for secrets, so you can tell them anything
●lets you freely express your feelings and emotions without judging, teasing, or criticizing you
●accepts the limitations you have put on yourself and helps you to remove them
A person once said, “Friendship is a continuing source of bonding(连接), releasing, and creating in yourself and with the other person. There is an emotional bond between the two people.”
A good friend or supporter may or may not be the same age or the same sex as you, and may not have the same educational, cultural, or religious background, or share interests that are similar to yours. Friendships also have different depths. Some are closer to the heart and some more superficial, but they’re all useful and good.
38. Which of the following is NOT a function of a friend?
A. He brings you some happiness. B. He helps you feel less lonely.
C. He helps you get over the difficulties. D. He helps you cheat on the exam.
39. The underlined word “superficial” means _______.
A. deep B. hard C. shallow D. close
40. Which is the best title for the passage?
A. A Friend in Need Is A Friend Indeed B. What Kind of Person A Friend Should Be
C. To Be A Good Friend D. How to Get on with Your Friend
There are two types of people in the world. Although they have an equal degree of health and wealth and other comforts of life, one becomes happy, while the other becomes unhappy. This arises from the different ways in which they consider things, persons and events and the resulting effects upon their minds.
People who are happy fix their attention on the convenience of things. They enjoy all cheerful things. Those who are unhappy think and speak only of unpleasant things. Through their remarks, they sour the pleasure of society, offend many people, and make themselves disagreeable everywhere. If this turn of mind is founded in nature, such unhappy people should be pitied. The intention of criticizing and being disliked is perhaps taken up by imitation(模仿). It grows into a habit, unknown to its possessors. The habit may be strong, but it can be cured when those who have it realize its bad effects.
Although this attitude is mainly an act of the imagination, it has serious results since it brings on deep sorrow and bad luck. If such people aim at getting some advantages in social position or fortune, nobody wishes them success. Nor will anyone speak a word in favor of their hopes. If they are criticized, no one will defend or excuse them, and many will join in criticizing their wrong doings. So they should change this bad habit and stop worrying needlessly about themselves and others. If they do not, it will be good for others to avoid any contact with them. Otherwise, they will have a disagreeable time, especially when someone becomes mixed up in their quarrels.
41. How does the writer tell the happy from the unhappy?
A. According to their degree of health. B. According to their wealth.
C. According to their attitudes to the same thing. D. According to their habits.
42. The phrase “sour the pleasure of society” probably means “________”.
A. have a good attitude towards social life B. make others unhappy
C. tend to scold others openly D. enjoy the pleasure of life
43. We can conclude from the passage that ________.
A. we should pity all unhappy peopleB. unhappy people are dangerous to social life
C. people can get rid of the habit of unhappiness D. unhappy people can not understand happy people
44. If such unhappy people insist on keeping the habit, the author suggests that people should ________.
A. not have any communication with themB. show no respect for them
C. persuade them to recognize the bad effects of their habits
D. quarrel with them until they realize their mistakes
45. In this passage, the writer mainly ________.
A. describes two types of people B. laughs at unhappy people
C. suggests ways to help unhappy people D. tells people how to be happy in life

So today I want to give you some wisdom about how to make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen. Here are three tips for great cooking on a tight schedule:

____49____ This may surprise you, but one of the best tools for making cooking worth your time is experimentation. It gives you the chance to hit upon new ideas and recipes that can work well with your appetite and schedule. The more you learn and the more you try, the more ability you have to take control of your food and your schedule.
